About the team & our challenge 👋
Software development is at the core of our organization. Together with a strong team of data scientists, a head of product and a hardware architect, our three software development teams work every day on improving our product. These three subteams are Edge Devices, IoT, Platform(Devops, MLops and Data Infra), and Applications & Integrations.
Our product—and our data pipelines—starts with our sensors and gateways. Our Edge Devices Team ensures that our devices are reliably and securely connected to our cloud environment. As we aim to process our data close to its source, the team provides a platform on our devices where we can deploy software.
Our Platform Team develops and manages the company’s core data infrastructure, extending from our devices to the cloud. This infrastructure supports both our production systems doing real-time detections, as well as the experimentation environment that our data scientists use to improve our predictive models.
Our Applications & Integrations Team is key in providing our clients with insights into the health and performance of their machines. The team develops and manages both client-facing and internal web applications and dashboards. In addition, the team develops and manages the APIs and integrations we use to interact with our customers’ systems.
These are focused, agile-working teams, currently consisting of 3-5 software engineers each from a range of backgrounds and nationalities. The software department uses a practical and functional methodology, allowing them to fully focus on software engineering. We work based on the principle of freedom and responsibility. We take pride in combining professionalism, trust, and a minimal number of meetings.
We have a strong DevOps culture and a modern development process to match. We trust our teams and believe in taking end-to-end responsibility for the things we develop. We collaborate and communicate freely. We practice CI/CD, and release often. We believe the best way to manage our infrastructure is managing it as code. We therefore use Terraform to manage our AWS infrastructure. Linux is our preferred OS, and we use it both on our edge devices and in the cloud. Our main programming language is Python.
Our product, SAM4, is taking the industry by storm. We have completed successful funding rounds and have a number of high-profile advisors on board. To continue reaching our goals (and beyond), we are always looking for the best software engineering talent. We are excited to see applications from experienced developers—and we would also love to hear from top-performing recent graduates.

Globally, 300 million industrial electric motors power the global economy while consuming 30% of all energy produced. These motors face three critical problems: they fail unexpectedly, are often operated inefficiently, and selected inadequately. This leads to high costs of unplanned downtime and massive energy waste. At Samotics, we are passionate about solving these problems with a unique, AI-driven solution. Our technology is used by many of the world's largest and most successful industrial companies. It enables them to significantly reduce energy waste, with our mission to reduce global energy consumption by 10%! Since our launch in 2015 we’ve grown fast—with more than 100% revenue growth per year and currently over 100 people. We are an energetic company where professionalism, a great atmosphere, and cutting-edge technology go hand in hand.
